The Tulsa Health Department is working to make it easier for children to get their back-to-school immunizations ahead of the fall semester.

THD is getting the word out now to help families beat the rush to get vaccinations before school starts in a few weeks.        

The health department said back-to-school shots are the best way to protect children against vaccine-preventable diseases.

While THD is encouraging everyone 12 and older to get the COVID-19 vaccine, it said children need other immunizations for school. THD said children have routine vaccinations due after turning 4 years old and 11 years old. THD also said there's a required vaccine for students going into 7th grade.

THD is now accepting vaccination appointments at the Collinsville Health Center, once a week on Tuesdays, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. It also has several other clinic locations open for immunizations by appointment only.

The list of locations and operating hours is below:
